Chennai: The CBI today filed cases against top Food Corporation of India (FCI) officials here, including a General Manager in a case of "illegal gratification".

The investigating agency said in a press release that cases under different sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act were filed against Jeyakumar, Regional Manager of FCI and Durairaj, Deputy General Manager of FCI.

The agency acted on reliable information that "huge illegal gratification" was being received by the two officials from area managers during monthly review meetings "for avoiding frequent transfers and harassment."

Surprise checks by CBI at the offices and residences of the officials resulted in recovery of Rs 1.05 lakh from Jeyakumar and Rs 49,000 from Durairaj, all kept in separate envelopes, it said, adding that cases have also been filed against seven regional managers in Chennai and Coimbatore, among others.

Searches at the residential premises of Durairaj also yielded incriminating documents connected to the case as also those relating to recovery of "huge properties amassed" by him, it said.
